Lowest TCO wear liners

Extend your productuction cycles and bring down your cost per ton. FerroCer Impact modular wear panels are designed to give you the longest possible wear life. Your hard-mineral mine operators can reduce maintenance shutdowns, operational downtime and operating costs, from the moment the panels are installed. This combined with easy installation and affordable pricing means that FerroCer wear panels give you the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) on the market. 


Patent-pending design

Reduced maintenance and repair cost can be attributed to the unique FerroCer design. Each FerroCer panel comprises a set of abrasion-resistant ceramic inserts enclosed in a matrix of malleable steel. The matrix ensures only the top surface of the inserts is exposed to material impact. The sides of the inserts are tapered within the matrix, keeping the inserts in place and preventing material particles and fluids from damaging the panels.


Reduced environmental footprint

Less material input, less waste and an improvement in your environmental footprint are all thanks to the longer wear life of our FerroCer panels. Operate secure in the knowledge that you are doing your part to help the planet.


Low weight and compact size

Safer and easier to install than typical bulky wear liners — and you will only need standard hand tools to make it happen. FerroCer Impact panels are compliant with the manual handling requirements of occupational health and safety organisations. Weighing in at only 5 kilos per panel (or 9 kilos per Edge panel) they have a compact, easy-to-handle size.


Simple installation

Enjoy an easy-to-install solution that can be customised to your unique needs. Each panel is attached using a single countersunk bolt. An entire chute can be lined with the two types of FerroCer panels: The Standard panel covers most of the chute’s surface; and the Edge panel is elongated to cover the chute’s entry and exit points. The panels can also be trimmed to accommodate irregular shapes or corners.
